As a NH Birth and Newborn Photographer, my absolute favorite part of my job is the connections that I make with new moms and dads and watching their precious babies grow up. From the moment I met this couple, we hit is off and I am so grateful to now be able to call them my friends. From their maternity session this summer to the birth of their daughter – I have been there to capture it all.
I just recently saw Autumn when she took a photography class that I was teaching and she shared her “daily photos” of Anastasia with me. I still can’t believe that this gorgeous baby is 6 months old!!!
From the minute that I saw a photo of this little lady’s nursery, I knew her newborn photos were going to be AMAZING! Her mom has impeccable taste and the colors and lighting were to die for. Every detail was thought out, from the crib with her name to the custom armoire that mom had created herself!
When you book a newborn session with me, I give you all the details of what to expect at our consultation. One thing I always ask is that you feed the baby right when I get there. Not only so that we have a happy full baby but also to capture some images of these beautiful bonding moments. The connection between a mama and a baby is magical to me.
Ana was a dream to work with. She gave me smiles, slept and was super happy to let me wrap her up like a little cocoon. The white fur rug in her bedroom made for some beautiful shots of this little angel.
One of my favorite places to shoot at an in-home session is in the master bedroom. There are a couple reasons. 1) The bed is a HUGE flat surface to put baby on and it is safe. 2) It will show how tiny they really are. 3) Everyone can snuggle really close and be comfy at the same time.
The nursery is usually the center point of all lifestyle newborn sessions and this one was GORGEOUS! Every detail was to die for and I especially loved her name stenciled on her crib.
The connection between little girls and their daddy’s gets me every time and it was no different with these two. Those little eyes looking up at her daddy with her small head in his hands makes my heart melt.

Newborn Photography can be tricky with older siblings sometimes but back in August when I came to Exeter Hospital to photography Baby Ozzi for his Fresh 48 Session, his big brother Enzo stole the show!
I can usually tell how a session is going to go within the first few minutes and when Enzo climbed up to look inside the bassinet at his little brother, I knew we had gold! He was so adorable, giving his new brother a stuffed giraffe and touching his toes. AHHH – a photographers dream.
Mom and Dad were wonderful as well and completely relaxed and just so overjoyed with their new little man. I loved watching their interaction with both boys and it was so fun hanging out with them.
Fresh 48 Newborn Sessions usually take place the day after delivery. When I come to your hospital room, I spend the first few minutes tidying up the room and yes, I rummage through your baby bag to see what you have for blankets and such that I can incorporate. This gorgeous newborn swaddle that mom had was the perfect blanket for this session. I just love how the color pops.
Ozzi had a nice full belly and was very happy to just hang out all snuggled up in his bassinet while I took his close up. Those lips and his eyes are just amazing and I was so happy that he was awake for our session.
Details, details, details…have I mentioned how much I LOVE detail shots. Those feet will only be tiny for a little while and those little fingers that are wrapped around dad’s hands. AHHH – this is why I love photographing newborns. Everything about them is too darn cute.
Exeter Hospital here in NH has some of the most amazing natural light and is one of my most favorite places to take pictures.

I was on vacation when I got the text that Baby Cole was born this past summer and I was bummed that I wasn’t going to be able to do his Fresh 48 Newborn Photography Session in the hospital (he was a week early). Instead we decided on a fun In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session the day after he got home when I would be back from vacation.
I was so happy that our timing worked out and I fell in love with this little guy as soon as I first held him. His little dimple is dreamy! Kellee had his nursery decorated in the cutest nautical theme with sentimental touches like a bear that she had as a baby. I just love personal treasures in a nursery.
My favorite place to photograph a baby in their home is in bed with mom and dad. It really gives perspective as to how tiny this little dude was. AND these candid shots show just how in love they are with this little guy.
Wrapping this little guy put him fast to sleep and he let me do whatever I wanted. Dad even asked if the could steal my wrap to use at night so Cole would sleep :). Nope, but I did help them figure out the awesome Swaddle Me Wraps that they had and I was told it really helped.
I can’t believe that this little dude is 2 months old already and is full of smiles! According to mommy’s latest Facebook post he loves the tubby, watching the fan and being outside seeing the trees. SLOW DOWN LITTLE MAN. All these cute summer babies are growing up way to fast!
Thank you Kellee and Cory for sharing your adorable dude with me and I am so happy to be able to watch him grow up.

I first met Maeghan when our daughters started going to daycare together about 2 years ago when they were still little peanuts. Fast forward to this July and Alaina became a big sister!!! As a Fresh 28 Newborn Photographer, I jumped on the opportunity to capture the first moments that Alaina got to meet her little brother Hayden.
Fresh 48 Newborn Photography is still a pretty new trend and it is one that I really hope sticks around because I LOVE IT! Capturing that very first day in the hospital, siblings meeting little brothers and moms & dads falling in love with this new little person is just amazing.
When I arrived at the Family Center at Exeter Hospital to meet baby Hayden, the hormones were racing and poor Maeghan was crying tears of happiness watching her “little girl” meet her “baby brother”. I gave her a quick hug and assured her that we were going to capture some amazing moments and that I was so excited to meet her little man.
Alaina did not disappoint and jumped quickly into the “Big Sister” role – feeding baby Hayden, singing to him and wanting to take him with her to get ice cream out in the hall. It was adorable! She even climbed into the bassinet to snuggle with him.
I am so blessed to be a part of these moments and humbled when my clients share how much it means to them. Maeghan was so kind with her words and I just had to share them with you all:
“Jennie was amazing to work with in our fresh 48 session. I was concerned that having her take pictures while we were in the hospital would be too chaotic and stressful but I was completely wrong. Jennie was a nice friendly face who had us laughing even when hormones are raging, exhaustion is real and you don’t know what life changes are in store. She got the most amazing shots of our son and daughter the day they met and we have pictures we never would have taken on our own. I felt completely at ease as she positioned Hayden and the rest of my family for the photographs. My only regret is that I didn’t have her there during labor to capture those moments, her work is truly phenomenal.”

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography is a newer type of photography that is catching on here in New Hampshire. The In-Hospital Newborn Sessions are for families who want to capture the first few hours of their newborn’s life but may not want the entire labor or birth documented.
This past July was FULL of new babies and I loved every minute of it! I had gone away over the 4th of July and while I was gone…3 of my clients went into labor. EEEKKKK! When I got back from my mini-vacation I started with Liz and Baby “E”. He wasn’t due for a few days but when dad texted me that Liz was “at the hospital in labor”, I was super excited! Then, about 10 minutes later, he texted me to say that the baby was born!!! Holy smokes! Yes, mom had a super fast labor and dad almost missed the delivery.
I scheduled their session for the next afternoon and I was so happy to capture this little guy who was less than 24 hours old. I arrived at Elliot Hospital in Manchester, NH and jumped right in! Mom had just fed her little guy so he was a “happy camper” (cutest onesie EVER).
This little guy had the cutest “old man” wrinkles on his forehead and all of his little features were ADORABLE. He was so happy…until he wasn’t and he not only yelled at me but stuck out his tongue. LOL:)
After a little bit of loving and a nice swaddle, we were back in business! I even got a SMILE!
If you follow my work at all, you know that I am obsessed with baby feet. I love everything about all of the little details and I swear that I could photograph them all day. Honestly, I have no idea why because I hate adult feet.
Liz was such a great first time mama and I could tell she was going to rock this mommy hood thing from the beginning! I love this series of her looking at him…there is no other love like it and every mother should have photos like this.
